A member of the House of Representatives, Teejay Yusuf, has called for dialogue and as a way to resolve some of the issues raised by #ENDSARS protesters.
The lawmaker also called for payment of compensations for victims of police brutality in the country.
According to him, the best that can happen now is to pull back from the brink, have frank dialogue and demand the institution of lasting corrective measures that may become part of our constitutional reforms.
The lawmaker noted without effective dialogue and a timely resolution of the recent face-off that started as ‘ENDSARS’ protest, Nigeria’s political elites and protesting youth stand the risk of huge collective losses.
Yusuf, who is a People’s Democratic Party (PDP) lawmaker representing Kabba-Bunu/Ijumu Federal constituency in the National Assembly, stated these in a statement on Friday.
Youths, since October 10, had been protesting alleged human rights violation abuses by members of the now disbanded Special Anti-Robbery Squad, a unit in the Nigeria Police Force. (Nation)
